J.Lo Says She Doesn't Gamble in Las Vegas — 'But I Do Eat a Lot'

In her downtime, Jennifer Lopez enjoys Sin City’s many culinary delights

Jennifer Lopez told Paper Magazine about her love for dining and dancing while she performs in Las Vegas.

Jennifer Lopez likes to eat a lot when she’s in Las Vegas. The triple threat opened up to Paper Magazine about her love of the Las Vegas restaurant scene and how she doesn’t like to drink but loves to dance.

When asked what her favorite places to visit in Vegas are, she answered: “I love the shows and the food. The restaurants change here all the time. They're always bringing in the best chefs from all over the world to draw people to gamble, so bonus for me. I don't gamble, but I do eat a lot. Occasionally.”

And why not eat? Las Vegas boasts many fine dining venues, such as Joël Robuchon and Mercato Della Pescheria. It also offers tons of opportunities for wild adventures — but you won’t find Lopez doing anything crazy (like getting married at this Las Vegas Taco Bell) anytime soon.

When asked what some of her wildest adventures were, the entertainer didn’t have much to report. “I feel like people have wild adventures and drink, and, like, do other things, and I don't do that stuff,” she explained. “You know what I mean? I'm here to dance and the wildest thing I've done is, oooh, I danced 'til 4. You know, that was it.”
